A recent study of ocean waste, conducted in several marine regions, has revealed some disturbing results. Researchers have found out that out of the 103 million classified marine pollutants, 25 million are cigarette butts and whole cigarettes.
Furthermore, cigarette production itself, has a serious detrimental impact on our environment. The facts are devastating – it takes 1 tree for every 300 cigarettes that are produced while 4 miles of paper per hour are used to roll and package the ready production. If you add up all natural resources that are used during the manufacturing process (plus the toxic chemical wastage), it is obvious that smoking and cigarettes are extremely hazardous to mankind and the environment.
